I just left the cellars of Domaine Forey having tasted through the 2010 and 2009 vintages with Regis Forey. For years I have been begging Regis to take his foot from the lever and not be afraid to show the tender side of Burgundy. Regis is a good friend and sensitive vigneron who appreciates our ongoing dialogue.
The result of our continuing conversations is now fully evident. The 2010s, for my taste, will be the best wines to leave this cellar in many a moon. Without sacrificing concentration, Regis has rendered wines in this vintage that have all the elegance that I am constantly looking for as well as a clear and pure expression of terroir.
